Starting next Tuesday commuters will now have the option of taking the train from Alajuela to San Jose and back. The train will be leaving from Rio Segundo twice per day, once at 5:00 AM then again at 5:30 PM, coming from San Jose the train will leave at 5:50 AM and again at 6:30 PM.

Authorities have stated that the new route is being tested purely on a trial basis of three months that if successful will pave the way to future stops including one at the Hospital of Alajuela.

Hopefully the people of Alajuela will be a little more mindful of the train and accidents won’t be the daily occurrence they are in San Jose.


As of yet the hideous train schedule website has yet to be updated with the new route.
